The best time to visit Halong

ha-long-bay

When is the best time to visit Halong Bay really depends on your own definition of a perfect trip. If you are most concerned about weather, then the periods September – November and March – May are ideal for a trip to Halong Bay. The dry climate and pleasant temperature will enable you to enjoy all activities offered on board while making sightseeing as perfect as it could be.

If you are a budget minded travelers, then schedule your trip between May and September. This is often considered the low season and many cruise ships offer massive sale off on cabin: you can save as much as 40% on a cruise trip compared with other time in a year.  However, the months of July – August often see sporadic hurricanes and storms, which may render cancellation and delay of your trip. In those cases, you can switch around by visiting another destination in the North of Vietnam and visit Halong Bay later. These storms will not last longer than 3-4 days.

If you do not have the option of time, then be rest assured that you will enjoy your trip as much as when you do no in another month or day of the year. The Bay is filled with sunlight and rain usually does not last long. In warmer season you can take advantage of swimming opportunity and in cooler season you will enjoy Halong Bay like no-one else: imagine a steamy BBQ lunch by the caves in one of the most gorgeous natural complex of the world – it’s all about experience.

Peak Season

Anytime is a great time to visit Halong Bay but some months receive more visitors than the others. The peak season falls on December and January – the months that coincide with Christmas and New Year break. Other months that also see busy lines of travellers include October, November, February, March and April. During these months, the weather is also most suitable to visit Halong Bay.

Off Season

The period from May to September is often considered a low season for international travellers in Halong Bay. Besides the glowing sun – which makes it perfect for water based activities, the uncrowded beach and various cruise promotions are all attractive reasons for you to plan your holiday around this time of the year.
